RE: TimeSpan Iterator


Your comment "Users should be aware that this is not an efficient
operation, though." may help me decide if my current use of a secondary
time index is better then.  Right now I maintain a table that has
timestamps as the rowid whose values are the rowid in a metadata table.
Therefore I do one range scan based on the timestamp.  Then a second
lookup of the metadata rowid.  Is this more efficient?

Does anyone know of a TimeSpan Iterator that will fetch rows based on
the accumulo timestamp?


We actually wrote our own TimestampRangeIterator and
TimestampSetIterator classes.  I don't know if 1.4 has any in the core
libraries.  It's not very hard though.
There's a TimestampFilter in org.apache.accumulo.core.iterators.user in
1.4.  It uses a range of timestamps.  Users should be aware that this is
not an efficient operation, though.
